This month's coffee of the month can be summed up in one word, sweet! It is wonderfully sweet throughout, with a medium body and low acidity. It has brown sugar sweetness in the front, notes of toast and pastry in the middle, and it finishes with a smooth milk chocolate finish.
Roast Color: Medium-Dark
Cupping Notes: Brown Sugar, Toast, Milk Chocolate
Story:Finca Humana (the Human Farm) is the first thing you will hear about Café Organico Marcala, S.A. (COMSA). The well-being of humans is foundational to the COMSA philosophy and educating more than 1,500 producer-members to successfully live in harmony with nature is everywhere at COMSA. The trailblazing ideas for using organic matter to productively cultivate high quality coffee is only a sliver of what COMSA teaches about the power of nature through the Finca Humana philosophy. COMSA dedicates significant funding from the proceeds of coffee sales to run a cutting-edge international school dedicated to filling children’s minds with possibility and training them to be the future leaders of Finca Humana.
What makes it so good? The fundamentals: traceability to the Marcala region, which is a protected designation of origin; meticulous post-harvest hand sorting of cherry; cherry floating to remove less dense beans; proper fermentation; long drying times; and a healthy dose of the COMSA philosophy and training.
